the national average. for example, new hampshire was 30% above the national average. massachusetts was 43%, maine, 67%, and florida, 68%. unfortunately those living in these and many other states can expect to see higher prices once again this winter, and this is precisely why we are bringing to the floor h.r. 1900. h.r. 1900 simply would bring certainty and agency accountability to the natural gas pipeline permitting process. it would allow natural gas pipelines to be built in a safe, responsible, and timely manner. it would also make existing natural gas pipelines safer. during the legislative hearing on h.r. 1900, we heard testimony from industry of a corrosive natural gas pipeline that could not be replaced in a timely manner because an agency missed the deadline to issue a permit by nearly a year. the american people demand better than this. and so as we hear discussion and consider amendments to h.r. 1900, i want to thank once again the members of the subcommittee, the staffs, and representative pompeo for all the work on this important legislation. i respectfully reserve the balanc

ject-safe neighborhoods. prior to his service, he talked 30 years at the university of massachusetts amherst and he is welcome here today. these proceed. >> thank you. report, the urban institute observes that federal population has escalated to over 219,000 today. has comees this growth at great expense to taxpayers and other fiscal priorities. i cannot agree more with this report on the problems of fiscal austerity confronting public safety budgets. i believe we need to be very careful not to oversimplify the trade-offs in public safety that we need to consider in order to make the decisions and as a result may offer cost shifting instead of true cost shavings. -- savings. the more conference of view would cast the issue differently. we need to reduce not the cost of incarceration, or indeed the criminal justice system, but rather the total social cost of crime, including not only expenditures on public safety, but also the cost of victimization. and as we seek to do this, the allocation of funds among components of the system should be guided by their demonstrated effectiveness in

. in the center of your screen, john mccormick, massachusetts, speaker of the house of representatives. now, at this moment, david brinkley, and washington. >> we are still in the rotunda at the capitol, which is now closed to the public. members of congress, their families, and staff members are passing through for the last time. a group of them have just been graded by speaker mccormick. mr. mccormick, there, the tall man in the center. the last figure we had from the capitol police -- 250,000 people passed through the rotunda yesterday afternoon, last night, all of last night, and this morning, until the doors were closed 45 minutes ago. when they were closed, some thousands -- as many as 50,000, but we are not sure, were still waiting in line. they had been told, dimly, that it was most unlikely there would be time for them to pass through. the schedule now calls for mrs. , thedy, her brother attorney general to be here at 10:30 and begin the procession from here to the white house, to the cathedral. that is representative hallock on the right, republican leader in the house, along with
happened in massachusetts and they said, look, massachusetts had problems with their rollout too, give it time. >> actually the real problem with the president's plan is not just the rollout. that's implementation and glitches of various kinds. it should have been done better but it wasn't. the real problem is the broken promise, the dishonesty. that's what's really striking. >> it's more that than bad management. >> sure. obviously the systems aren't working and they're frustrated but when the systems are working, millions of people will still lose the insurance they don't want. they're being asked to buy policies they don't want at prices they can't afford. >> do you think the president lied for personal gain? >> i think the president understands. he under they would loose their insurance. that was the nature of the entire product that they put forward. they knew that but they said, well, you can keep your insurance, period, and -- >> characterize that. >> it's dishonest. what starts twisted stays twisted and it's not going to be fixed until we fundamentally reshape obama care or rep
were you? guest: i was a freshman at the university of massachusetts at amherst, walking to class. the news spread like wildfire. nobody believed it. class was adjourned and we all went home. host: why 50 years later do we still feel compelled to reflect on the kennedy presidency? was this a turning point in the 20th century? guest: it is what might have been a turning point. the reason i think there is so much interest in the legacy of president kennedy is for what his administration stood for, this notion that every single person can make a difference in our country. the optimism that public service is a noble undertaking, that government is here to help, it's not the enemy. these concepts that president kennedy promoted, with the founding of the peace corps and the initiatives he undertook, this is something that contrasts with the political polarization today that you look back at those halcion days and say to yourself what might have been. host: he served only two years and 10 months, and people look at what happened before his assassination and the events that unfolded after
, i guess, if you're a conservative democrat from massachusetts, you get called a pragmatist. if you're a liberal republican from the south, you might get called a pragmatist. you know, kennedy, kennedy said sometimes it's not the labels that matter, and i go back and forth about whether he was right about that. i think the labels in some ways are useful lenses for helping us remember what actually happened. and that's, you know, that's really what i hope people will take away here. >> well, thank you very much. >> we'd like to hear from you. tweet us your feedback, twitter.com/booktv. >> november 22, 2013, is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of president john f. kennedy, and there are several books that have been published this season to mark the event. throughout the month join other readers to discuss the kennedy books published this year. simply go to booktv.org and click on book club. once there, you can check out some of the book club resources we have posted including book reviews and videos from the booktv archives, and you can log in as a guest or through your faceb

californians into the program is is a very good sign. we remember that in massachusetts when they passed their health care law in 2006, only 123 people signed up in the first month and the rush came at the end. so all of these are -- these are good signs for the exchanges and for the affordable care act. >> david, i hate to quibble with a nobel prize winning economist but i think that paul has not compared the correct numbers or the ones that are most relevant to the measurement of success in california. it is true that about 22% of the population is 18 to 34 years old and 32.5% of new enrollees are in that age group. but that group represent over 40% of the uninsured. about 42% of the uninsured. california is not capturing them all but they never expected at this stage to be capturing them all. they had a more modest expectation in this first year. and that's one of the things that is present across the board in the expectations. >> i think the other thing is beyond the numbers are the human stories. the washington post had an extraordinarily poignant story. all of these people, many of
